Very Family orientated company
HR Manager (Current Employee), Porstmouth NHJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: gym, 401k match, good health care, family oriented, advancement/growth opportunites
Cons: can be stressful but most jobs have a little bit of stress.
I have been working here since 2008 and have been promoted 3 times in less then 5 years.

During the 'depression' time. Direct Capital did what they could to minimize having to let employees go. Even had VP's on the phones trying to keep the business going and generate sales. They want you to succeed and grow with them as much as you do!

The generosity – more... they show towards their employees is astounding! They have offered PTO donation banks for employees who have run out of their own PTO and needed to stay out longer to either get better or care for someone else. They have Jeans Donation days every Friday for local charities and a lot of the time if it affects an employee, they will match what is collected. To me that says a lot about the company!

Even during the stressful times of the month, I can honestly say I love my job and love coming to work, – less

Pros: culture of ethics/success, vibrance, opportunity
Direct Capital provides an opportunity for people that are driven and focused on being successful.

So far as culture, Direct Capital's recently adopted core values make working here very pleasant. There is a vibrant culture that creates a combination of ethics and success and the company with their employees envolvement has been extremely generous with their charities.

I have been at Direct Capital for almost 13 years. I have held various positions within the firm, as needed by the firm. I can honestly tell you that the environment is completely positive.

Finance Manager (Current Employee), Portsmouth, NHJanuary 8, 2013
Pros: great energy, fun environment, and can make great money
Cons: must want to succeed and put in the time to do so. it won't be handed to you.

Sales (Current Employee), Portsmouth NHDecember 7, 2012
Pros: contests with cash rewards, great lead flow, great products to service customers, transparent and highly rewarding.
Cons: it's in portsmouth nh
I've been with Direct Capital for 8 yrs and while that seems like a long time, it's only a hair above average in our sales department. The tenure of the sales team averages 5 yrs...unheard of. There are many reasons sales professionals come to Direct Capital and stay for a long time, compensation, multiple revenue lines, residual income, great growth – more... opportunity, awesome resources and sales support, great systems and a great work environment.

If you seek a sales career that is not only rewarding but also challenging and extremely fast paced.....Direct Capital is the best place for you. – less

Sales (Current Employee), Portsmouth NHDecember 4, 2012
Pros: 401k match, benefits, friendly enviroment
Cons: can be stressful at times
I have been with Direct Capital now for over a year. I am also one of the younger gentlemen on the sales floor. My time at Direct Capital has been both rewarding and challenging. I look at my job as a sport that has 12 games. Each month is a game. You start fresh and you can make anything happen with no limitations. There is no cap as to how much you – more... make. You are not scripted, you alone are in control of your career here at Direct Capital. Want to work with a friend? No problem, get them a job here too and you can get up to 600$ with the referral program. I came to DCC because I heard good things and I wanted a job. My intentions were to stay here for a little while, save up some money and then go to school. With the amount of money I am making, I have no need to go anywhere else. I have chosen a career here at Direct Capital and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a career in sales. – less

Communications (Current Employee), Portsmouth, NHNovember 26, 2012
Pros: avanti market, great group of people, 401k match
I can honestly say that this is the first job where I don't dread going into work each day. The group of people that I work with are great and we all really get along. The casual Fridays don't hurt either - as we are asked to donate a small amount of money to a local charity. We have donated over $15,000 as a company just this year alone... JUST for – more... wearing jeans. It feels awesome. I would definitely reccomend working here! They also just brought back the 401K match... so I am a happy camper! – less

Direct Capital as a company is extremely driven and forward-thinking, and the same is true of the employees here. I've never worked with a smarter, more innovative bunch of people.

Coming to work each day, knowing I will be challenged and learn something new is something I look forward to. This is a great environment for people who strive to be the – more... best at what they do and are not content with status quo. That said, it's not for everyone.
